I’ve been living here in Japan for almost 4 years now. I know that there are a lot of good reasons to live and stay here for good. These 5 reasons are on the top of my list.
1. No time wasted in traveling.
One of my biggest issue when I was still working in the Philippines is the amount of time wasted because of traffic jam.
Here in Japan, trains are almost never late. Riding trains to get to work and to travel for vacation is very easy and efficient. It can be very crowded during rush hours but it is still tolerable for me than to wait in a non moving vehicle.
2. Japan is a peaceful and safe country
Japan is consistently in the top 10 of most peaceful countries in the world.
3. Fast internet connection.
Japan has good internet speed compared to my home country.
This is very beneficial for me due to the nature of my work. And because I enjoy watching a lot of movie and tv series online.
4. Nice places to visit.
Japan has a lot of tourist destinations.
From Hokkaido to Okinawa, the tourist and adventure spots are very accessible.
5. Better career opportunities.
Not all people will agree with me on this; specially people who already had the chance to work on better countries. But compared to the Philippines, I have a better career in here.
